Key points about this bill:
The Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies plans to assess the exclusive period granted to the South African Post Office SoC Ltd, during which it’s the sole provider of certain postal services under the Postal Services Act of 1998. These services include delivering letters, postcards, and small parcels, issuing postage stamps, providing roadside collection and address boxes, and operating retail outlets for accessing these services.
The purpose of the review is to ensure equitable access to basic postal services for all citizens at a uniform postage rate and affordable price, regardless of their physical location, as mandated by the legislative framework and the postal service license.
